Shir Khan&Exploited dip their toes into the world of disco edits with the launch of new label Black Jukebox which sees contributions from label regulars Homework as well as introducing the Hamburg axis Doctor Dru & Adana Twins into the fold. Doctor Dru&Adana Twins lead the way with their slo-mo housed-up boogie-soul joint “Juicy Fruit”. Alongside it “Supreme” dips into housier territory with the primitive scratching and rising piano lines giving proceedings an 80s sensation soaked with twilight niceties. Both tracks are presented it in a nicely recut fashion reminiscent of the great Tiger & Woods. On the flip Homework transforming “Lenny” into a glistening disco house number whilst “Love Ray” is perhaps the most straight up excursion into main room filtered disco house territory.
